I had excellent soup at my neighbor's house on Saturday when it was snowing like crazy and 22F while we were clearing out storm debris. It got me thinking about doing my own....
So today I bought canned whole corn, two cans of green beans, two red onions, one clove of fresh garlic, a bag of bowtie pasta and then I emptied a can of hearty vegetable soup into the slowcooker first, threw in the cut up onions and garlic, threw in a gob of black pepper, the bowtie pasta, a whole pile of cut mushrooms, some sea salt, two cans of chicken breast pieces in water, wild white rice, filled it to near the top with fresh well water, and a dose of garlic pepper. I have it on "low" and can already smell it...I'm getting hungry
I've used dessert recipes I've gotten here. Any good soup recipes too? OH, and my chicken fried steaks came out awesome with the advice I got! That preseasoned flour is the bomb!

Moderator cut: Editing to add this important tip about using rice in crockpot:

I love soup and that sounds great. I love to just toss things into the crockpot and let them simmer. Tasty.

I like to experiment and I have started with this recipe for Butternut Squash Soup and come up with some delicious variations. LOL--sometimes I have different things in the refrigerator. I know I once used a cup or so of buttermilk and I really liked the little tang. I include a grating of fresh nutmeg when I cook butternut squash--meant for each other.



Enjoy.

I usually brown a moose roast in a pan, add it to the crock pot with water, then peanut potatoes, fresh carrots and what ever cans of vegies are in the cupboard.

Have you ever tried Taco soup? SOOOOOOO EASY and GOOD. Brown a lb of hamburger, Open and dump 2 lg cans of tomatoes, 2 cans of corn, 2 cans of kidney beans, dump in a package of taco seasoning. Warm for about 15-20 minutes. Eat with tortilla chips cheese and sour cream. I guess it is not a crockpot recipe, but it is so good on a cold day, and fast n easy (Like I used to be )
I'll have to think of some more for you. I love crockpot cooking.

1. Stew
Brown some ground beef then add to the pot w/ everything else
2 cans tomato sauce, after pouring those in fill w/ water and pour that in
1 can corn
1 can green beans
1 can dark red kidney beans
cut up fresh carrots
cut up potatoes
salt and pepper and let simmer

2. Chicken Noodle Soup
Boil 3-4 skinless boneless chicken breasts in water and a can of chicken broth till done then cut up and put back in pot. Add another can of chicken broth and possibly more water, celery salt and seasoning salt, 2-3 chicken broth buillion cubes, and one large bag of those frozen egg noodles. YUMMMY!!!!

3. Potato Soup. LOVE IT and still can not make it to this day.

Here's a crockpot version of taco soup. This is different, but MMMMM MMMMM GOOOD!
ground beef
large can of crushed tomatoes
1 sm can diced green chiles
1 sm onion
Several cans of various beans. (I usually use 2 cans chili beans <added flavor>, 2 cans kidney beans, 1 can pintos, 1 can black beans, 1 can great northern <white beans>) do not drain beans, just add to pan
2 cans of hominy <white or yellow>
2 pkgs taco seasoning
2 pkgs powdered ranch dressing (this is what sets the taste off)
2 cups water if needed

Brown ground beef, add to crockpot. Add everything to the crockpot EXCEPT for the taco seasoning and ranch dressing. If you add the seasonings early on they will thicken and set in the bottom of the pot. Let simmer about 4 hours on low or 2 hours on high. When you're ready to eat add the seasonings.
This is great soup!

My favorite crock pot food is chili. I buy the "brown bag" chili mix, add 1-2 pounds of stew meat, and follow the directions. The only thing I do different is put it in the crock pot. I don't care for beans in my chili so I skip them. I like to serve this over a bed of rice with grated Monterey Jack cheese over the top and a tortilla on the side.
